not want to give support. they do not agree with anything he does. whether it helps america or defeats america. they made up their mind whatever obama's as we are against it. if that helps america, it does not matter because we said over eight years ago we did not want him and will not support anything he does. we want the white house back -- in essence what they are doing they are making it better for america. the republicans will never return to the white house because they will never be for all americans. guest: george reminds me of a great line from a groucho marx movie but soup -- whatever it is, i am against it. that is a refrain in the song in the movie by the marx brothers. it is kind of what it seems like with some of the tea party republicans, what ever it is obama comes up with, they are against it. that is not how we move the country forward on any number of issues and certainly not regarding the fiscal cliff negotiations. the president has put forward a plan that includes about $1.20 trillion in tax revenue by increasing the tax rate on people making $400,000 of income are

house. >> i am very proud to announce my choice for america's next secretary of state, john kerry. in a sense, john's entire life has prepared him for this role. having served with valor in vietnam, he understands that we have a responsibility to use american power wisely, especially our military power. and he knows, from personal experience, that when we send our troops into harm's way, we must give them the sound strategy, a clear mission, and the resources that they need to get the job done. in an extraordinarily distinguished senate career and as chairman of the foreign relations committee, john has played a central role in every major foreign policy debate for nearly 30 years. as we turn the page on a decade of war, he understands that we've got to harness all elements of american power and ensure that they're working together-- diplomatic and development, economic and political, military and intelligence-- as well as the power of our values which inspire so many people around the world. he is not going to need a lot of on-the-job training. he has earned the respect and trust

, you know, there are not a lot of people killed in schools in america. every time someone is killed in a school in america it is a horrific tragedy, but in terms of what are our social problems, schools themselves as sites of violence are not the thing that we, is not really the problem in terms of what the data is saying. and i felt like it, in focusing on the schools, that was maybe missing the problem. tom? >> i think it is important to realize that self-defense does not begin at the moment of conflict. there's self-defense that the society enables through regulations, through laws that have passed, through norms it tries to establish. and one of the big things that is missing from this debate, we can go back and forth and have a conversation about whether armed security would stop anything from happening, didn't help in columbine, but the bigger question is, we as a society, what does this say when you want to put more guns in your place of education, in your place where you send your 5, 6, 7-year-old children? is that the message, the sort of society that we want to be? or do w
election again, that's because they were on the wrong side of main street america, on some cultural change happening in the country. they were on the wrong side of issues like the death penalty, on issues like the use of force in foreign affairs, and it wasn't until they'd gotten whacked, george mcgovern lost overwhelmingly, mike ducacas was beaten pretty soundly. after all those things happened, the democratic party through bill clinton and others like him trying to change it, made the party more acceptable to the american people. republicans have not gotten there yet. it was a party as we saw in the election, a declining -- white share of the vote is the declining share of the electorate. their share is going up, but not enough to compensate. >> right. >> right now the sort of primal scream you hear for spending cuts isn't consummate with the american people. president obama just ran on a program of resisting some of the fundamental ways in which the republicans wanted to change medicare and raise taxes on people over $250,000. he won the election and people from the very red districts e

in america the past four years, he says this guy doesn't get it. he has no idea how to create a job. guess what? the ceos, they're all on his side. the very ceos who were offended by what the president did over the past four years, almost all of them are now going to the white house, going back to the hill, trying to figure out why republicans are not finishing this deal. and maybe the republicans will finish the deal. maybe -- but it's important for americans to understand where these ceos are. they need a deal to be done, and they don't need these political games being played at this late hour. >> there's no doubt, you're right, that the white house has done a ton of reaching out, something that you and others have suggested they should have done a lot earlier. that has not produced, though, the imperative that we not go over the cliff. there's such a willingness to go over the cliff by people on both sides. i think that's a real problem because you can only get a deal if there's a lot of pressure. this is the easy part, though. getting a deal between boehner and the president is the eas

that that effort will begin now. >> america's first freedom and the other nra magazines were saying quite strongly before the election that once obama gets past the election, he is going to take the first opportunity for some terrorist event or notorious crime and start coming after the second amendment. that was -- that prediction of wayne la pierre and others is, unfortunately, proven to be exactly right. >> so while a seemingly change be in tone based on what the nra talked about on their -- what's going to come on friday in their news conference, what they are putting online each night in their nra news program seems to be consistent with where they have stood on these positions before, whether it's assault weapons, bans, gun-free zones, whatnot. it will be interesting to watch what they have to say on friday and who speaks for the organization on friday. >>> finally, secretary of state hillary clinton has largely been teflon in all the scrutiny on the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi but that may be ending now. last night an independent report by the accountability review board issued

that have become iconic in america's bizarre and shameful epidemic of gun violence. >> reporter: public outrage over the massacre has also emboldened members of congress to challenge the power of the gun lobby. >> the political power is much like the wizard of oz. they're bullies. and what's most important is, they really don't represent their membership. the members are overwhelmingly in favor of responsible use of guns and responsible rules. >> reporter: feelings are running very high after this tragedy. of course, there's been a lot of talk of a turning point. the president today will announce that he's putting vice president biden in charge of a process to look at possible new legislation. but, look, change doesn't happen quickly in washington. there have been about a dozen attempts to bring back the assault weapons ban. they've all failed in congressional committee. and the national rifle association spent $17 million this year to influence legislation and public opinion. it'll be looking out for its interests long after the outrage subsides. charlie, norah? >> bill plante, thanks.
